for me

I also find the CGI orcs to be really distracting. In LOTR CGI was really only used for orcs with wide shots where there were like hundred of them and they were in the background. I honestly can't stand seeing CGI orcs in closeup crawling over ruins in battle.

And I also agree about the CGI landscapes. While I think the landscape work they have done with the CGI looks very realistic (probably the most realistic CGI work I've seen) there's something about it that creates that artificial feeling. I think a lot of it has to do with that overabundance of it. Whereas before you would have some CGI background with a miniature and a set with an actor, now it's mostly just a the set with the actor and everything else is CGI. miniatures gave a lot of realistic weight that CGI just can't quite reach yet.
